Everywoman one womans truth about speaking the truth
Ice Castles by Leonore FleischerI read this as a kid. It was not my favorite but it was up there. I did a reread recently and while I did not love it as much as I did in childhood, it was still a beautiful story.
For those that do not know this book, it is about Lexy and the world of figure skating. Lexy is training for the Olympics. She puts her heart and soul into her skating and her coach is one of the best.
When Lexy has a horrible accident on the ice, she is left blind. At first she is devastated at the thought of giving up skating. But then she realizes does she have to give it up?
This is a beautiful and touching story. If you love the world of Figure skating then this is the book for you. There is also a romance but it feels authentic. I did en joy this book, both as a child and as an adult. Highly recommended.

Her humour and passion shine through every page. Loved it. Or you might already know me as that gobby MP who has a tendency to shout about the stuff I care about. The internet attracts a classy crowd. And I want you to believe it too.
In tone and content, the two could not be more different. Phillips is not your typical politician.

In conversation with Jess Phillips MP
Her humour and passion shine through every page. Loved it. Not to denigrate the talent of Lena Dunham and Caitlin Moran but Everywoman has all the laughs theirs have with a backbone of real glinting anger, which has not had to manicure and mutate itself in order to maintain a cool media career I have had to review loads of books which I couldn't stand. This was the first which I dreaded going back to because there were so many funny and wise things on each page that whittling them down into a review seemed impossible. Jess Phillips is an incredibly down to earth politician, who writes about some terrifying issues with honesty and hilarity. She is confident, loud and unapologetic, and it makes the book a joy to read.
